La Chapelle, Charente
Property SummaryIn a beautiful setting beside the banks of the River Charente, this beautifully renovated property offers a principal house along with a guest house, a pretty garden and easy access to the river.
The house has just been renovated to an "as new" standard and is being sold fully furnished and equipped.
The front door opens into the bright-and-airy triple-aspect open-plan living room (35m2) with tiled floor and plenty of space for designated sitting and dining areas. To one corner is a quality fitted kitchen area.
From the living room a door opens to an internal hall (large enough for a computer/home office area. This hall gives access to two double bedrooms (15m2 and 11m2) - the smaller of the two also has an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC). Next to the the larger bedroom is a generous shower room (shower, twin-wash basins and WC).
To the side of the house a door opens to a small storage area from where there is access to the roof-space. It could be possible to convert some of this into habitable space (subject to any relevant permissions / surveys).
As with the main house, the guest cottage has just been renovated to an "as new" standard and is being sold fully furnished and equipped.
The guest cottage / gîte sits to one corner of the courtyard to the front of the main house. The front door opens to the living room (22m2) with a sitting area (with ornamental fireplace) and a fitted kitchen area.
To the far side of the room a staircase rises to a large double-bedroom (17m2) with ornamental fireplace and wonderful views over the River Charente. There is also an ensuite shower room (shower, wash-basin and WC).
The property sits on a plot of 1050m2. From the little lane gates open into a courtyard garden to the front of the house. This area is manly laid to gravel and provides plenty of parking space. Between the house and the cottage there is a small workshop.
Next to the house is a sun terrace, beyond which the rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees.
This is a beautifully renovated property in a lovely setting with no work to do (other than unpacking the suitcases!) It would be possible to purchase an adjoining parcel of land if desired
There is a restaurant within walking distance in the village and the neighbouring village (just over 1km) has a couple more. The popular little town of Aigre, with its market, is just 8km, and Rouillac (which hosts one of France's largest monthly street markets) is only a 10-minute drive.
